There are two campgrounds at Dead Horse Point SP. We camped on site 29 Wingate. The Wingate area is new and very big rig accessible. The Kayenta campground is older, has smaller sites and tighter to maneuver around. We checked in at the visitors center. (The gate was unmanned). There were no camp hosts present, although the first three sites on the way in looked like host sites. Sites are electric only, water was on site at the host sites only and at the dump station. (Not drinking water) Most sites are back in, several are sloped. Pull thrus are spacious and there are no trees or obstructions that interfere with access. The rest rooms were immaculate. They looked brand new. No OTA TV reception. AT&T signal was excellent. Canyonlands NP is about 20 min drive, Arches NP is closer to a 40 min ride. Moab is 5 mins past the Arches NP entrance. Dead Horse Point has several hiking trails, the point has a great view of the canyons. We camped at Dead Horse Point State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring it with you! The nearest store is in Moab, 45 min away. The Visitors Center has good information on hikes and a gift shop. There is a short movie in the lower level too. If you camp in anything larger than a 30 footer, Wingate is the better option.

This is a wonderful campground. We stayed at the new Wingate area of the facility. Even though there are no showers the restrooms are set up to avail everyone of privacy and a wet bath is just as good. The area is very well kept; hosts keep everything amazing clean. We would stay here again if ever the opportunity became available. We camped at Dead Horse Point State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Dead Horse Point State Park is northwest of Moab, on the road to Canyonlands National Park. The park has some of the best views in the area, as good or better than Canyonlands. There are now two campgrounds, Kayenta (the old campground), and Wingate (new this year). Both campgrounds have electric at the site, and dump stations by the entrance. Neither campground has water. There was a sheet on the board next to the restrooms that had a list of places with water and showers in Moab. The restrooms have flush toilets and a dishwashing sink, but no showers. Every site in both campgrounds has an asphalt pad, covered ramada with picnic table, grill, fire pit, and level tent pad. Fires are banned for the 2018 season, and all of the fire pits and grills had yellow tape across them. Kayenta, the old campground, is picturesque. Most of the sites have views. The way the sites are arranged, it felt private and was quiet, even on the weekend. If you have anything larger than a truck camper or tiny trailer, you will probably have trouble getting level. The pads are mostly not level, and are surrounded by rocks, so there isn't much room to maneuver. Wingate is the new campground. It is more big rig friendly, and more RV friendly in general. It's on flat ground, and roads are wider, and RV pads are much larger. But it is not nearly as pretty as Kayenta, and the views aren't as nice. Cell service, both Verizon and AT&T, was good. We camped at Dead Horse Point State Park in a Motorhome.

Positive: electrical hookup, good location for Arches and Capitol Reef National Parks Negative: Bring Water! Load up on water before you arrive - there is no water for tanks (but you can wash dishes in the sink next to either of the two bathrooms with flush toilets. Dead Horse Pt Campground added a new loop this year (Wingate), so roads, bathrooms, etc. are all in great shape. Very long pull-throughs. Flat, asphalt. Dump station also easy to use.

Water for fresh water tanks is available in Moab. City Market has a hose near the gas station. City Market was also the only true supermarket anywhere between Moab and Bryce -- had everything we needed, and more.

Stayed four nights in a moterhome with the family. Brought 20 gallons extra water but didn't need it the family steped up and conserved water and used the park restroom a lot. Very clean and nice. Site was perfect with my son sleeping in a tent. Lots of space and had campfires every night. Wood available at visitor center. Super quiet! Stayed in Moab for a few nights after....too noisy. Next time full week at DHPSP. We camped at Dead Horse Point State Park in a Motorhome.

If you remember to take lots of water with you, you will enjoy this campground and the surrounding area immensely. The camp workers work very hard to keep it clean (they were painting areas when we arrived). Super friendly camp host and workers. We loved being close to the vistas in Dead Horse State Park with breathtaking views that we thought were better than others in the area. We would definitely return. Super close to Canyonlands and a little further to Arches but it was a pleasure to drive and see the views. No hookups but dump station in campground.

As others have said, this is a fabulous campground. The views are breathtaking and the hiking trails are great. It does have some issues for big rigs. The driveway lengths listed on reservation.gov can be very misleading. Many of the sites slope so steeply that only a portion is usable for the RV itself. Most of the sites also have large boulders at the end of the pavement that prevents overhanging the pad, further limiting usable length. We stayed in sites 1 and 11 in our 43' coach with a dolly and a car and had no problem. Site 21 is also long enough for us, but I have my doubts about others. There is no overflow parking for cars or trailers and the rangers will not permit parking off pavement., so everything must fit in the driveway. The power posts are on the wrong side of the pull-through sites. I had to run an extension cable under the coach. There is NO water, so bring all you will need. The new sites mentioned in another review are now scheduled to open after January 1, 2018. The new back-in sites appear to be about 70' long and the pull-thrus are easily 100'. The sites are the largest I can recall ever seeing. The best views are in the old campground, especially sites 9-20. All sites, old and new, have covered patios with tables and fire pits. We camped at Dead Horse Point State Park in a Motorhome.

The chorizo and fish tacos at Giliberto's are surprisingly good. Also check out their salsa bar. Don't miss Moab Backyard Theater, a funky outdoor venue with fun shows and local live music Mar-Oct. Take chairs or get there early to get a hay bale seat. Wednesday night bluegrass is my favorite. BYOB, too.

This campground offers a unique experience with it's location high above the Colorado River. The campground is adding an additional 30 sites which are scheduled to be available in late October. The current sites are well spaced and offer covered picnic tables. Most sites are unlevel, front to back, but not too badly. There are flush toilets and dishwashing sinks but no showers. RVs need to bring their own water - no RV water is available. The Maverick convenience store in Moab offers free potable water. There are wonderful hiking and mountain biking trails. Great canyon views. The park rangers are very nice and can offer many suggestions on what to do. We camped at Dead Horse Point State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoyed dinner at the Moab Brewery in town. We spent 7 nights at Dead Horse Point and stayed busy visiting and hiking in the National Parks. A good 4x4 high clearance road is Shafer Trail down from Canyonland National Park.

Dead Horse Point is conveniently located between Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. The sites were extremely private with small pine and juniper trees providing lots of cover. Our site had two groomed tent pads as well as a lovely sheltered picnic table with a light and cabinet for food storage. Sites were level with electronic and limited cellular service. We camped at Dead Horse Point State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We seriously loved our stay here! Gorgeous park with amazing views, friendly and helpful hosts, a really nice dog friendly 4.5 mile trail with spectacular views. Very, very quiet at night with great star gazing. As previously mentioned, 30amp electric only at each site, but a dump station is in the park. Sites are mostly nicely spaced each with two large tent spots, a gazebo, and picnic table. The bad news is there are only two sites in the park which are big rig friendly. Our site, 21, was probably our favorite in the entire park with no close neighbors, very long (although a bit barrow), and a huge corner lot. The other big rig site, 01, is a pull through which is also nice. Several other sites looked to be a bit uneven front to back, but smaller rigs under 30' shouldn't have too much of a problem. Very difficult to get reservations, so plan ahead. They will be adding about 30 additional sites in the future which will be nice. We camped at Dead Horse Point State Park in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our camping experience at Dead Horse Point, we stayed here whilst visiting the National Parks in the area. Easy check in, sites have some privacy from other campers but beware of the stated lengths of the sites, some of that length is on a steep slope, we had great difficulty fitting in our 31 ft fifth wheel onto our site that was advertised as 35ft. Very well maintained facilities. Great views from both the site and the state park. Bring a full tank of water as none available on site. One dump station available at the entrance to sites. All sites had electricity. We camped at Dead Horse Point State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park sits on top of a mesa overlooking the Canyon. The views and trails are fabulous. This campground has no water available and very little shade. There are flush toilets and sinks but no showers in the restrooms. No water at the sites or public spigots anywhere to be found. Make sure to fill your water tanks before arriving. Only dumpster is on your way out at the dump station. Many of the sites are sloped requiring extra leveling efforts. Each site had a covered picnic table with food storage. We had a couple of Kitt Foxes spend some time around our camp site.

Make sure to stop at the visitor center and ask about the moonlight hike. We would definitely camp here again. We camped at Dead Horse Point State Park in a Motorhome.

Excellent park in the Arches / Moab / Canyonlands area. Unique features make the park interesting. Perfect views of the Colorado River and east side of Canyonlands Nat'l Park. Nice sites with tent pads and well covered picnic tables with storage, power & light fixtures. No water in the campground, so plan ahead. Lots of interesting desert creatures running around at night like rabbits & foxes. So far, our favorite park in our favorite area. We camped at Dead Horse Point State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Visit Canyonlands and Arches National Parks, especially Arches. The area is packed with outdoor activity and Moab is developing an interesting downtown. Watch the weather. We've seen snow in May and triple digit temps in June, and it is always windy.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to camp near one of the most beautiful areas in Utah. Yes there is electric, but no water, fill up before you arrive. Sites are nicely spaced, you don't feel crowded and the wild is at your back door. We had Kitt Foxes and hummingbirds, squirrels and jays. Great hiking trails and Visitor center. All in all a remarkable place to visit. Very dark skies for the astronomy crowd and photographers. Most sites have lovely shaded buildings around the picnic tables.

This campground has NO WATER available. There are flush toilets and sinks in the restrooms, but no water at sites or public spigots. There are no showers. Make sure to fill your water tanks before arriving. The campground is small and sites are hard to get - reserve early online. Choose your site carefully as some are very short or on slopes.

The fabulous views and trails at this state park make any inconvenience worthwhile. It sits on top of a mesa overlooking huge canyons near the town of Moab. Hiking and biking trails are available. There is a visitor center with exhibits and a gift shop. We camped at Dead Horse Point State Park in a Motorhome.
